|Food consumed: Four chicken tacos with crispy shells, cheese, lettuce and taco sauce. One lemon cookie. Diet sodas: 2 Salsa: Went with the Pedro salsa again. Solid, very solid, just like Pedro in the playoffs this year. By the way, nice choke, Yankees. Hours spent blowing leaves: 2 Believe it or not, it might snow today in Connecticut. But there are still a few leaves yet to fall! It's not supposed to snow when leaves are still on trees, is it?|
2.) Mike Tirico, Lee Corso and Kirk Herbstreit had a good night. Luckily, they realized this game was a dog, so they had some fun in the booth and were fair in their criticism of both teams. 3.) Mrs. Couch Potato's second-half entrance. Mrs. Potato spent her younger years going to Hurricanes games with her brothers: "The best part about those games were Miami fans giving the finger whenever Florida State played that stupid song." Mrs. Potato was also critical of the hat North Carolina State coach Chuck Amato was wearing, describing it as a cross between the headgear worn by Peter Sellers' Inspector Clouseau and Bear Bryant. Her actual words were, "Look how pathetic that hat is! All he needs is the big trenchcoat." I can't say I disagree. How could his assistant coaches let him wear that? No wonder the Wolfpack are in the bottom 10 in the nation in turnover margin and penalty yards. I blame the hat.
